Perlmutter’s new book, YOUR CONSCIENCE, offers readers an easy-to-understand introduction to the human mind. But why should you care? Why is this book different? And why is an understanding of the mind, and the role of the Conscience, so critical in this moment? Because, as Mr. Perlmutter tells us, “It’s only when you understand how your mind works that you can learn to use it differently. And as we continue to grapple with the COVID pandemic, the most politically divisive environment since the Civil War, and the climate crisis (to name just a few of our most serious challenges), it has never been more clear that we need to think differently.”

This short, profound book can help. It offers simple tools to access our unlimited wisdom and creativity, tools we never learned in any level of our schooling. Imagine the potential for renewal if an entire generation gained the confidence to know what’s to be done and what’s not to be done in every moment, no matter what the challenge. This is the real, practical freedom that comes from a reliance on the Conscience.

YOUR CONSCIENCE can be adapted for students in middle school through advanced graduate degrees, as well as for adult education programs in community centers, cultural institutions, places of worship, and other educational venues. The book has been endorsed by educator Tara Brach, Dean Ornish MD, Bernie Siegel MD, and others.
